MAGFest - We're Going!
11/15/09 MAGFest - the greatest videogame con in the universe - who's going? We're going. Every year around January the con "by fans for fans" unleashes its set list and guest list, and we're happy to announce that we've made the cut once again. Alongside our brethren X-Strike Studios, ScrewAttack, Eddie Lebron, and Main Moon, PBC will be representing as part of a new film festival track that brings together the heavy hitters in fan-made videogame films. Also presenting their ultra-popular web series' Yugioh: The Abridged Series and There Will Be Brawl is Martin "LittleKuriboh" Billany, and Matt Mercer & Zach Grafton.
It wouldn't be Music and Games Fest without some stellar bands, so here's what we know so far. The One-Ups, Smash Brothers, A-Rival, Arm Cannon (Buffalo represent!), Metroid Metal, Select Start, The Megas, Entertainment System, Temp Sound Solutions, Armadillo Tank, Rare Candy and This Place is Haunted will be melting faces and shredding videogame music covers throughout the four day extravaganza. You heard me right, 4 days. This year MAG takes place from Friday to Monday of the new year - January 1st - 4th.
Little Miss Gamer will be recording with PAW and Lee of Still Gaming, in a live session of the Lee & Z Show. They'll be talking up con culture, new games and taking questions from the audience. This is your chance to meet Z and hang with the TGWTG crew.
So what will PBC (literally) bring to the table this year? We'll be screening our second feature-length documentary on puppetry in the United States - a doc that Chad and Z have been working on since the PBC crew shot it in Atlanta in July. There's a LMG t-shirt that we'll be teasing in the near future - and MAG is the first place you'll be able to get one. Pre-orders will begin in December, but orders will not ship until after MAGFest. Konjoined Kitties will be available for purchase at our table - that's right, for the first time ever we'll be packing plushies! Everyone loves the "happy-sour" nature of the ultra-cute Konjoined Kitties, and this is your chance to take one home.
Our favorite thing to do at MAGFfest - besides playing videogames 24/7 for four days - is to hang out with friends and fans alike. Some of the hotel room parties have been epic, out of control things of legend, and we're ready to rock all night long once again. Personally, I'm looking forward to talking to people that we only get to see once a year.
Well, that wraps up this update: PBC is going to MAGFest, and you should too! It's the biggest, baddest party of the year and we'll keep going until the end of time. Hope to see you there!
11/9/09 You've probably been wondering what we've been up to lately. Well - this is one of those things. You may remember we had a road trip down to the festival this past summer. Since then we've been hard at work putting together what is proving to be an awesome documentary. Word has it there may be a sneak preview screening at MAGfest in January, but more about that in a day or so.
